I bring a mix of the things I love to our online therapy sessions: the peace and silence that your favorite place brings, the creativity of expression and curiosity of exploration, and a chance to move forward in life by doing something new. Therapy is an awesome space to explore yourself and undo the knot that life seems like. I knew I wanted to get into private practice, but that I wanted it reflected my values. Therapy with me is set out to be a space where you can exist with yourself, reflect on the need that brought you here, and learn to find peace with it.
One of the most exciting revolutions that are taking place is the idea that therapy doesn't need to be a place that is simplified to a science. It can be creative, welcoming, and individualized to each and every client. The idea that the therapist is the expert in a person they just met are gone. I have firmly believed that people have the answers and solutions to their problems, and just need the guidance to work through what keeps them from being their best selves. You are awesome can make your dreams come true, and I'll be more than happy to guide you through the problems.
Before any journey, it's important to be well prepared. We will use our first session to become oriented to your internal world. This looks like an exploration of the different thoughts, feelings, and actions that you want to bring forward to start. These different parts relate to others, and the internal conflict they share between each other. There is a path towards healing, and together we will navigate it courageously and confidently in the following sessions.
Depression often causes people to feel sad, empty, or hopeless, and can cause a lack of interest in life. It can also affect a person's thinking patterns and physical health.
Caregiver stress & support
Caring for a friend or family member (paid or unpaid) includes emotional support, housework, help with finances, medication management, and shopping. Can be stressful, making caregivers more vulnerable to things like anxiety, isolation, and fatigue.
Parenting issues involve those associated with the child-rearing process. These may include safety, discipline, nutrition, finances, childcare, school, household rules, chores, daily routines, social activities, and relationships with extended family members. Because child-rearing practices vary by culture, cultural norms must be considered.
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
PTSD is a condition that is precipitated by a perceived terrifying event. This event need not occur directly to the person but may happen vicariously—having seen something terrible happen to another person. The condition may last months or years while symptoms include ruminating thoughts, flashbacks, nightmares, intense anxiety when triggered, and potential substance abuse in attempt to cope.
Anxiety can mean nervousness, worry, or self-doubt. Anxiety disorder is a mental health disorder that entails excessive, repeated bouts of worry, anxiety, and/or fear.
Designed to help people choose, change, or leave a career at any stage of life. Careers are often wrapped up in people’s perceived identity, therefore, any change can cause anxiety and/or depression.
Grief is a reaction to an emotionally significant loss and often comes with symptoms of depression or anxiety. These symptoms can remain intense and last for a long time after a loss, making it difficult to move forward with a healthy lifestyle.
ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) causes a hard time focusing attention and controlling restless or impulsive behavior. People with ADHD might have emotional outbursts, be forgetful, and/or find it difficult to stay organized.

You are going to through your phone if you see one more email from work. You are going to through your phone if you see one more email from work. You have had enough of these dementor-type meetings that could’ve just been an email. Then you wouldn’t be studying internet tabs on ‘How NOT To Get Fired When Finally Confronting Your Boss’ after being sucker-punched by your boss's dismissal of your concerns. You’ve crafted a workstation to calm you: a colorful plant in a pot supporting your trusty NPR desk mug with the monthly Coffee Club brew still warm. You had a creative desk, but now it's covered by the Patagonia Pants you wore months ago on your last adventure. Why are you avoiding putting them away? Putting those pants away means an end to adventures: Accepting replying 7 times in an 18 email chain because no one reads them, being talked over and ignored in meetings, and being so tempted to comment “as per my last email”. Putting those pants away means losing the sense of adventure and freedom you have always longed for but never achieved. I’m Tim, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, nature-loving poetic, and a rooted dreamer. I won’t offer you the solutions through mental tricks of changing your thoughts and ‘coping skills’ that seem more like a magic trick. I will help guide you to the freedom and adventure you’ve been missing for ages.
